Vantrix's software and Quickfire Networks' Video Processing hardware have been brought together on a new platform that enables significant performance benefit for delivery of streaming video, as showcased in a live demonstration at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). The combination which uses QuickFire Networks' T-VideoTM platform, powered by Intel® CoreTM i7 processors signifies a quantum leap in video processing density.
"“Our initial testing exclusively relied on the i7 CPU to baseline performance, which showed some incremental improvement over existing systems. Subsequently tapping the Intel HD Graphics capability gave us an immediate three-to-four fold improvement over the CPU-only baseline,” said Jim Knapik, president and chief executive officer of Vantrix. ”
“We’re excited to see Vantrix and QuickFire Networks taking full advantage of Intel’s newest graphics and video technologies,” said Jonathan Khazam, Intel Vice President, and General Manager, Visual and Parallel Computing Group. “Intel HD Graphics integrates high-performance media and transcoding hardware to enable cost-effective delivery of complex, multi-format video to subscribers across a variety of devices. These solutions offer a whole new level of price/performance for media servers.”
